The President's Challenge Match

LEADERSHIP MAKES A DIFFERENCE...

To further broaden leadership support for Purdue, a limited matching gift opportunity is available to bring new members to the President's Council, the university's leadership giving society. The President's Challenge is designed to help interested donors move immediately into the President's Council while incrementally increasing their giving.

Here's how it works: We ask that you make a three-year pledge of at least $500 in 2009, $750 in 2010, and $1,000 in 2011. The President's office will provide matching gifts of $500 in 2009 and $250 in 2010 when you make your pledge payments. The combination of your gift and the President's matching funds will qualify you for membership in the President's Council in each of the three years. Corporate matching gifts cannot be used to meet the required minimums.

Your gift can be designated to support the programs or areas that matter most to you and the matching gifts from the President will be directed there as well. Everyone benefits. You become a President's Council member as soon as you make your three-year pledge. Your contributions mean the programs that matter most to you will receive even greater support

Every gift to Purdue is important, but the impact of your President's Council-level gift is particularly vital in moving the University forward. Please take advantage of this special opportunity, and exercise your leadership for Purdue.
